If you have ever wanted to go on a guided fishing excursion at Walt Disney World I will present you with some knowledge. It can be a fun in the sun adventure if you love to fish and the outdoors. You typically wake up at 9AM and meet up with your guide at the resort around 10AM and off you go, the resorts vary.
This time we met up at the Contemporary Resort Docks.
They go over a few basic rules then you launch out. I’ve been three times on this excursion. The first two times were awesome, the feeling of being VIP cruising through Seven Seas Lagoon and around the resorts is amazing and refreshing while in Florida.
Screw the fishing guide, I wanted to go on a mini jet boat so bad!
Our last adventure our guide Sean was a total asshole, don’t know how he even has this job. If you get a good guide everything is awesome and fun, usually they bait your hook, help you cast, teach you the good spots, etc. This guy was like a lazy piece of shit who didn’t say or help worth a shit, and then when we asked he was just was so apathetic it was useless to even bother. However we still had a great time. It costs around $300 for 2-5 people for 2 hours and then your suppose to tip your captain as well. Check out the photos below for the fishing adventure.
WDW Trip Report Day 3: We visit the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival! Was a lot like the Food & Wine Festival except the fact they had a bunch more flowers and topiaries at every turn. The merchandise was eh okay but still can’t find a 2018 poster, GRR! However, check out the adventure below. Also had dinner at Akershus House in Norway. The F&G Festival takes place every year sometime between Feb 28th-May 28th with several events, presentations all on flower & garden topics.
Love seeing the monorail, even before entering EPCOT!
We are IN! We always opt to take the photo at the end of the night, a lot more scenic to have a family photo at night.
Headed into the Grand Floridian for breakfast
So day 2 at WDW starts at the Grand Floridian for breakfast at the 1900 Park Fare. Being gluten free Disney is good at any place, but why here? Well we had kids this trip and this is the hottest breakfast spot currently according to reservations/tripadvisor etc. The character breakfast is also on point and the characters make a good round, the food was also pretty good. Not as good as Crystal Palace but good. Also a quick tip, it’s easy to navigate the parks since we had a reservation here, we got to park here and jump on the monorail straight to the parks which makes it super easy.
Such a scenic spot to chill at and check out.
Quick parking lot magic band power up before entering.
Finally the countdown is over and we get to go back to Disney World! The most magical place on Earth. But I think the waiting part is part of the magical journey. I will be posting daily blogs of our trip report and updating. Today we flew in from Little Rock and met up with the rest of our family then checked into our “Magical Vacation Home” and then decided to hit up Disney Springs.
I will review each aspect including the Magical Home part as well! So stick along this week and feel free to ask any questions. There will be a lot of photos and I’ll put some explanations at the bottom. I wanted to do a seperate post on reviewing the Magical Vacation Homes experience but I think I’ll just leave feedback under each photo.
We opted to fly first class on the way their since it usually is a good deal compared to economy. Our plane got upgraded so we got lie flat seats all the way from Little Rock, was an awesome experience and a excellent start.
Hit read more to continue on.
So not much went on in February and Early March except a bunch of work stuff so I only had a few updates for March and April until our trip to Disney coming up in May, that’ll be a bunch of fun. So I’ll keep it simple. March is always a busy month with work, but personal life it’s always chill and a lot of resting and probably a massage. March Madness eh!
Had some Sushi, Sake, La Madelines, and the lady made a dope ass flower arrangement for the beginning of Spring!
Gluten Free Review
+accommodate gluten free very well
+chocolate sack (lol) can be made gluten free
An epic winter time cocktail with lime, apple, cinnamon, rum! yum.
So making the rounds since moving to LR to all the fine dining establishments I think I’ve finally found one I’ve said “I’d come back here next week”. I kept avoiding it because the reviews about over priced, blah blah blah. However this place is on par with some Texas steak houses that rival the beef quality of So’s Filet.
If your in the area, you must try SO. They need a better name though!
Ordered multiple cocktails, Winters Mule, Green Tea, Strawberry Martini all were poured perfectly and had a great ratio. Even though the green tea drink is meant to be a shooter it was still good. Winters Mule is my recommendation to try while it lasts, great balance of flavors. The filet Mignon came out perfect medium rare and the mash potatoes were bone marrow infused and cut with the filet was an amazing pairing choice.
For dessert we got the Cardamon Creme Brulee, sort of small but super appetizing and had an aperitif that leaves your palet feeling like your full and you want nothing else. The Chocolate Sack we got to go and they made it gluten free with the cake/crumbles on the side. Even packed the to-go box with ice to keep it safe from melting. Check this place out if your in the area, so damn good.
So we had a great Christmas, many presents were opened and many travel plans were accomplished. After Canada it was time to get back to the real life and start enjoying some home time and getting things done. One of those things was making home made gluten free fish and chips. I will link the recipe at the end. I also haven’t had any fish and chips since Disney World at Raglan Road where they’re gluten free so I was pumped. It ended up being excellent! The one thing I will do different next time is make my own tartar sauce, the store bought kind sucks.
Fully custom fries, fish and chips! Delicious.
Look at that luscious fish right there, so juicy flaky good. Gluten Free
Canada eh? I’ve always wanted to go back since going as a youngin’ to Montreal and this time I wanted to hit up Quebec City. When you google “most Christmas magical places to visit” Quebec City during December is one of the top choices, just google it. It’s such an amazing place with awesome people and beautiful sights. A must visit for anyone who love’s new adventures, architecture and a different culture with a language barrier.
Alors venez pour cette aventure à Québec!
Instead of posting a daily blog series of the entire trip I’ll just make an entire post of my journey with some of the pics I took throughout the journey. Also Gluten Free in Quebec? Yes! It’s very gluten free friendly and some of the best gluten free food around.
Flew Air Canada the entire route. For me being 6″1 the only thing I was worried about was the size of these jets. However they were comfortable enough and pleasant for a 2-3 hour plane ride no problem. Also saw my first Tim Hortons!
At the Toronto airport I found a gluten free cranberry maple sandwich! WHAT? So good. Also Quebec airport and our luxury 4×4 chariot. Hit Read More!
Tried out a new burger joint in Little Rock called Burger 21 + New Gluten Free Pizza Joint. I mean for another burger joint, this place got it all right. The inside is super small, the staff is sometimes eh behind, but the food is on point.
Had the pizza burger last time on a gluten free bun and it melts in your mouth. Also the different sauces is an added amazeballs treat when you can dip your sweep fries in fluffy marshmallow sauce, ok I’ll try it and it turns out to be pretty good for the first few bites.
The pizza burger is excellent, perfectly cooked with a ninja turtle flavor.
Try this spot out, excellent grub spot, usually fast.
U.S. Pizza Company, Maumelle, Arkansas
This place has been a new favorite for having some of the best gluten free pizza in Little Rock. It’s pretty damn good with excellent flavors and even better crust. The salads not to mention are some of the best I’ve ever tried. Also their homemade creamy Italian is the reason you go.
